“I entered the act! program because the program gave credit for work and life experience, as well as courses taken in my undergraduate programs.”
“The Robert C. Noyce stipend allowed me to make student teaching a top priority – taking some of the financial pressure away during this important and challenging time.”
“I believe that I will be a better teacher because I was fortunate enough to receive the Robert C. Noyce grant. I was able to complete the program requirements earlier due to the act! program. I did not have to hold off taking courses due to financial constraints.”
“I am able to seek more professional development and was able to student teach with less stress and more time – making the experience a high quality one.”
